It’s the newest photo from a small batch at my Facebook ‘fan page’ (it still feels a bit embarrasing to have set up a fan page!) of my books in the wild – just to prove to me that they do exist out there.
I’d love you to take a photo of any of my books wherever you are in the world and send them through to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll put them up on Facebook.
Talking of The Blue Handbag, Leonard has done me proud and Catherine has written a very kind review of the book over at Juxtabook. ‘Utterly delightful’, she says. What a lucky writer I am.
The Blogsplash numbers have reached 110 – you can see who’s signed up recently here. It’s also reached its first Hebrew blog – cool! Here’s the latest tweetable blurb if you’re willing to send it out again: 890 Bloggers needed: Blogsplash on 1st March next year. http://bit.ly/JxqFs (a big thank you for any retweets!)
In other news, I’m on day 5 of not looking at Facebook or my Amazon rankings except on Fridays… You know about my egogooglaholism problems, and so I’m feeling (cautiously) quite pleased with myself. Meditating again in the mornings is helping, as is a kinder diet and lots of journalling, but it’s a bit chicken and egg as always. I think my extended time away-from-it-all at Amida helped the most. Being able to find the space and then sit in/with it – that’s the secret for me.
I hope you can find your own spaces today and try not to fill them up again. Happy Wednesday.
